Oral historian Pamela Brown Lavitt interviewed Shirley Bridge on June 27 & August 8, 2001 in Seattle, Washington as part of the Jewish Womenâs Archive "Weaving Women's Words" project.

One of Washington Stateâs first female pharmacists, Shirley was born in Seattleâs Swedish Hospital in 1922. She practiced pharmacology until she retired at age 66, and with her husband, Herb, raised two children. A pioneer on many fronts, Shirley was one of the first Jewish women to become a member of the Womenâs University Club. A passionate and indefatigable supporter of womenâs and health issues, Shirley survived five primary cancers and was a no-nonsense pragmatist venerated for getting things done. The Shirley Bridge Power of One Award is given by The Womenâs Endowment Foundation to an outstanding Jewish woman for her contribution to the community. Shirley Bridge passed away on June 2, 2008.

In the early 2000s, the Jewish Women's Archive conducted oral history interviews with 30 Jewish women living in Baltimore and another 30 in Seattle. Born in the early decades of the 20th century, these women lived through decades of political, social, and economic upheaval, as well as dramatic changes in expectations and opportunities for women. Doctors and lawyers, teachers and saleswomen, judges and social workers, homemakers and community volunteers, the narrators represent a wide range of backgrounds, affiliations, and experiences of American Jewish women. To find out more and to see the online exhibits based on this project, visit Jewish Women's Archive/baltimore and Jewish Women's Archive/seattle

The complete audio recordings and transcripts of the interviews are available on the Internet Archive.

This project was made possible in part by major grants from the National Endowment for the Humanities, the Brenda Brown Lipitz Rever Foundation, and the Jacob and Hilda Blaustein Foundation, Inc. In Baltimore, the project was a collaboration with the Jewish Museum of Maryland; in Seattle, with the Museum of History and Industry.
